Organic Insect Control Program at Via Verde

Dear Residents,

The Via Verde,  a LEED Gold Community, with gardens and greenery abound comes with benefits and along with them are the pests (gnats, flies etc....) that nest onto our bushes, plants and trees.  Normally, any property would just use regular pesticide to remedy the pest problems but we cannot do so only by organic means.  Recently, Cornell University scientists produced an effective homegrown organic method that we will start applying onto all of our trees, bushes and plants commencing tomorrow and will be a continued seasonal yearly program from the early spring to the fall.  You will see our super, gardener, and/or handyman spraying around the common areas.  So you are aware of what the concoction is made of, it is simply a combined mixture of canola oil, baking soda and water.

From:   Via Verde Management

Date:    2/4/2014

Re:       Winter Storm Warning

Please be advised a Winter Storm Warning will be in effect from Midnight tonight until 6 pm Wednesday.

The storm will commence with snow, sleet and then freezing rain to follow which will become very hazardous to travel in the morning with an accumulation of 3 to 5 inches of mixed snow and ice.

We would like to advise everyone to be very careful in your travels tomorrow, anticipate leaving earlier than usual for potential traffic or chaos.

Our staff will be working with the snow removal which will require rescheduling for any general work ticket repairs except for emergencies ( heat, plumbing leaks, drain backups or electrical outage) will be handled immediately by contacting the Concierge Desk at 917-243-7110/7111.


Thank you in advance for your patience and your cooperation in this matter.
